I hear this question asked quite frequently. Sometimes, you may hear this mentioned during a Bible study. By time they’ve gone around the room asking what this Bible verse means to each person, the people will often each have a completely different perspectives of what it means. This is wrong to do, because we can’t form an opinion on what we think God’s word means. Because, if asked this question at a later time in our life about the same verse, we may have a different answer, depending on what we’re going through in life at the moment. Instead, we should take the time to ask ourselves, “What is this scripture verse saying?” or, “What is the point this verse is trying to make?” It’s not right for us to take verse from the Bible and form our own opinion on it, when it may be completely different from what the verse actually means. God’s word can’t mean anything at all, if we’re to believe that a verse can mean many different things.
So, next time you come across a scripture verse, instead of deciding for yourself what this verse means to you, carefully think about what the verse says, then decide the point the verse is trying to give.
